Required Gear & Equipment

Equipment Required and Compulsory Gear

Wetsuit: Everyone needs a wetsuit for rafting. We strongly suggest full-length wetsuits for warmth and protection.  (plus wear running shoes & bike helmet).

Mountain bike: Everyone needs a mountain bike. Each team needs tools for basic trail repairs. You'll need front & rear bike lights if you're night riding.
